Mindset, Carol S. Dweck

I got a lot out of this. I’d read about growth and fixed mindsets before, and had taken some steps to working on my own mindset. But reading lot of examples helped me go much deeper.

Also, I think that reading a book lets you learn a lot more than a long article, even if they have the same content. Reading a book means you live with its subject. Your life is immersed in it for a while. There’s more chance for regularly-occuring thoughts or events to come up that you can tie into the material.
